Tutoring Approach:

Each one of my lessons is tailored to the pupil, no "one size fits all" curriculum.

Every pupil is taught and encouraged to pursue the musical direction they choose with confidence.

Getting the pupil playing, "doing" and engaging with the music as quickly as possible is the aim of each lesson.

Theory and contextual information is taught through the music the pupil enjoys (artists/bands/pieces) and is used to supplement their interest.

The most important aspect of the lesson is the pupil enjoying their time!
